Voters To Decide On Coliseum

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. - The Rapides Parish voters will get to decide in November if they want to help pay for repairs to the Rapides Coliseum.

The Police Jury approved a measure that would place a parish wide ad valorem tax to pay for a $23 million upgrade to the building. 

The motion passed unanimously, so it will be on the ballot in November.

Coliseum board members want to upgrade the concession stands, sound equipment and lighting.  They say the upgrades are needed to attract some shows to the Coliseum.
